Take in the View

When you find a home that’s just so beautiful and perfectly staged that you want it all, it’s not typically available as you saw it during the tour. Purchase this breathtaking beauty in Red Rock Country Club and you’ll literally get everything you see, because it comes fully furnished!

The 4,830-square-foot, four-bedroom, six-bathroom, listed by Paul Conforte of Xpand Realty & Property Management, uses the award-winning Treporti floor plan and includes upgrades such as panoramic windows and a two-story living room.

The courtyard patio entrance exudes elegance as you enter to see a formal dining room that’s ready for dinner parties. The living spaces boast plush sofas, chairs and love seats.

The architecture of the elegant ceilings is reminiscent of a Tommy Bahama-inspired island vibe. And the huge island plus the dining area in the eat-in kitchen means you can easily feed the family or a large group of guests. The kitchen’s appliances include double ovens plus a massive custom refrigerator that blends into the custom cabinets. The office is a work-from-home dream, with built-in bookcases and a unique oval desk.

Convenient luxury abounds in the expansive first-floor master bedroom, which continues the island atmosphere. The master bath includes a seated vanity area plus a distinctive curved shower. Also on the first floor is a fully loaded casita with a full bath, its own living area and a separate entry, ideal for family members or roommates who could share the home and, of course, for house guests.

The upstairs loft, with a pool table and wet bar plus a wine refrigerator, means you’ll have the perfect entertaining space. Additional comfortable seating adorns the living area off the loft space. The second floor has a junior master suite and a balcony overlooking the beautiful pool and spa with a thatched roof palapa covering a custom barbecue grill.

The only views prettier than the posh interior are the absolutely breathtaking vantage points that include panoramic views of the golf course, the mountains and the Strip!

Condo Convenience

Real Estate Expert Mahsheed Barghisavar sings the praises of high-rise living, particularly in the Las Vegas Valley. She notes, “High rises are great for people who want to be close to the Strip, close to the airport and for people who want a low-maintenance lifestyle.” She explains, “It’s an easier way of living. You have your gym and your pools downstairs. All the amenities are within where you live. It’s also more social. You meet a lot more people in the high rises. You’re always surrounded by ongoing energy. There’s guard-gated security. You’re getting the views and the Manhattan lifestyle.”

Close to Nature

Outdoor enthusiasts can rejoice because there are now even more options available in the Skye Canyon master-planned community in Northwest Las Vegas. This expanding community is positioned on the edge of the Valley, between the Strip and all the outdoor activities of the Mount Charleston area. Hawthorne by Lennar just hosted its first-look event, featuring three models, with one- and two-story options. The Sage floor plan offers the Next Gen home-within-a-home concept including a private-entry suite with a bedroom, bathroom and private living area, complete with a kitchenette and even its own washer and dryer.

Expert View: Philippe Ziade

Las Vegas, already an entertainment and dining destination, is poised to become known as something else: a leader in sustainably focused, custom homebuilding.

Leading this charge is Philippe Ziade, founder and chairman of the board for Growth Holdings. Ziade graduated with degrees in civil and mechanical engineering from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, after coming from Lebanon to attend school. Ziade notes, “I graduated in the year 2000 and I stayed here. The city was great to me. I love Las Vegas. I love the vibe. I love the energy. I see a lot of opportunity in Vegas still.”

His company’s real estate division, Growth Luxury Homes, recently acquired Augusta Canyons in Southern Highlands and is planning to develop customized, sustainable smart homes there. Ziade explains, “We are building The Canyon Collection to be the best of the best—the finest homes within a location that is unsurpassed. The architecture of our homes is distinctively GLH through clean, timeless and humanistic designs.”

Ziade says Growth Luxury Homes knows that, in this modern age, “it’s only logical that technology adapts to the needs of the homeowner. That’s the advantage of us being involved in technological development rather than just being a real estate developer. Our homes are powered by Tesla energy solutions, which work hand in hand with the smart capabilities and AI to ensure maximum efficiency.”
